“In A Strange Land”, a new Nollywood movie raising awareness of Modern Day Slavery and human trafficking is set for release.
“In A Strange Land” set in Nigeria and UK, warns that there are consequences of being a perpetrator of Modern Day Slavery.
This appalling crime that has no place in today’s society, unfortunately is on the rise throughout Europe.
In Germany for instance, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs says the country is increasingly confronted with various forms of human trafficking.
Apart from human trafficking for sexual exploitation or illegal organ removal, human trafficking for labour exploitation is also on the rise.
In the UK there are between 10,000 and 13,000 potential victims of Modern Day Slavery and a 40% rise in the number of victims referred for support. At least 10 people are trafficked every week into UK facing violence, exploitation and all forms of abuse.
According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), in Europe there are at least 600,000 victims of human trafficking for labour exploitation.
“In A Strange Land” encourages all to act and help fight Modern Day Slavery within our communities.
